Beastiary of Magic Creatures

Collapsed Species
Bugbear

A bugbear is a type of magic creature. They are between 8 to 9 feet tall… more description to come.

Most bugbears live solitary lifestyles, though some manage to subjugate other creatures to establish servile communities. Notably, many goblins have ended up working for a bugbear after the bugbear destroys the goblins' existing home.

Gods

The gods are a collection of lifeforms (though not a single species) whose only shared attribute is that they require belief for sustenance.

Cyclops

Devin

Devin is a magic cactus that grows somewhere in the Unseen Sea. Devin is approximately 120 feet tall, and has a long root which extends to the Worldkeep, into the roof of Knotted Hell. It is rumored that one could descend his root system to access the Worldkeep. Devin smokes cigarettes.

Elves

Elves are a fallen species in the New World , occupying the Elflands and more remote parts of Halfling Country.

Giants
Goblins

Goblins are a species of magical creature, and the oldest sapient species on Teraum. Native to the Widewoods, they at one point had settlements as far as the Central Plains and Unseen Sea.

Physically, goblins are between three to four-and-a-half feet tall, with black hair and skin that is various shades of blue and green. They are capable of withstanding carbon dioxide poisoning for significantly longer than humans, which they use their advantage.

Their small size led to them being subjugated by other magical species throughout their history, and that oppression has shaped their culture.

Culture

Goblins have a strong oral history featuring many folk heroes, most amalgams of many leaders combined.

They also hate horses, so will gang up on them and eat them.
